LThe companies member of AICCOR and the Footwear Technology Center of La Rioja, CTCR, took part from 10th to 13th June in the 88th edition of the trade fair Expo Riva Schuh, that was carried out in Riva del Garda, Italy.

That means that the visitors had a complete preview of the offer and can plan the orders in advance. For the exhibitors, this fair represents the first chance to test the collections and adjust the production plans. In fact, it is also the last event in the calendar for the orders of the present season winter 17/18, thanks to the pronto-moda collections, novelties and the stock replenishment.
In this way, the aforementioned companies, most of them located in Arnedo, took advantage of their presence in the first trade fair of the season, organized by Riva del Garda Fierecongressi. The visitors, who could check the quality of the products from La Rioja, are characterized by being part of the organised distribution - large warehouses, hypermarkets, buying groups, mail-order sales, store chains, large chains, distributors, importers - but also small and independent retailers.
